Balancing her desire as an introvert with her ability to be an extrovert (after coffee, of course), Andria opened AXW’s Hong Kong office in 2014 to capitalize on the strong demand for the agency’s expertise in partnership marketing and brand experience. Today, Andria is responsible for the agency’s Asia operations, overseeing all client engagement. She began her career like any good graduate of the Haas School of Business at Berkeley would as an investment banker at Lehman Brothers and, later on, Barclays Capital. After gaining experience in corporate strategy, Andria packed her bags and ventured into the startup world—Affinity China and Bomoda, to be exact—in business development and marketing, geared toward the UHNW Chinese consumer. The love for leveraging her skill set (aka her fluency in Mandarin) and network from growing up in Asia led her to AXW. As a true introvert does, Andria loves dogs more than people; though lately, her daughter Ellie takes the cake. When she’s not playing with her dog Maeby—a nod to Arrested Development—she’s reading a mixture of biographies, memoirs and mystery thrillers.
